Welcome, the face of our Sarah J Curtis Campaign – Dutch Model Gigi Ringel
First up, where are you while you are answering the Wallcandy Q&A?
How did you start modelling?
I was at an open day of an art academy, a student asked me to walk their end of the year show and I liked it so much that I wanted to do it more often so I went and saw a few agencies a couple of weeks later. And now here I am!
Which brand would you most like to model for, and what has been your career highlight so far?
I would love to do a campaign for Chloè or Miu Miu!
I’ve got so many highlights. When I get to work with a killer team on a gorgeous location, with fancy clothes that’s a highlight for me
If you weren’t modelling, what job would we find Gigi Ringel doing?
I would be a fashion designer, or a chef cook at my own beach cafe or a naturopath maybe?
How would you define success? Do you think you’ve found it yet?
Success is for me finding contentment within yourself. My parents always thought me you don’t have to be the best, as long as you have fun that is the most important part. I think that has helped me till today to enjoy the smallest things the most and never have to big expectations and so not many disappointments.
What is your favourite travel destination and why?
Byron Bay, it’s become my second home for two years now. Its just the most peaceful place on earth.
Best place to eat in Byron Bay?
Punch & Daisy – Mullumbimby (near Byron Bay)
